What is your referral to hire ratio?

This is a very important question before any company hires a Recruiter. Some Recruiters are trapped in this question because they have trouble tracking numbers and activity? Objective of hiring a Recruiter is Target deliverables and by asking this question employer will know of what a Recruiter has done in the past and what he/she is going to do for their clients.

Help with Global Applicant Tracking Systems Stats

It has been a long time since I’ve had a new post. The truth is that I’ve been swamped. I’m experiencing a massive influx in ATS activities. One of the biggest questions I’ve been asked in the last few weeks revolves around the number of companies using applicant tracking systems. While I have a solid understanding about market segments in the US, I would like to gain further insight of applicant tracking systems used on a global scale. From this information, I would like to do some “fun stats”… Continue

The best interview tip I can give you is…botox?!?!

I must be losing my mind. I’ve recently read a comment by a job seeker who is considering botox injections in an attempt to gain a leg up during an interview. I think we can all agree that there are probably companies and work environments that still practice sexism, racism and age discrimination. If you are actively looking for a job, the question you need to ask yourself is, “Do I want to be a part of this type of environment?”

There is a growing market for personal branding and… Continue

Virtual Recruitment Pride March!

Lets have a parade.

I was reading a reply to a question I posed on the Australian Corporate Recruiters site (blatant plug)around why people do Recruitment. A response I received by David Talamelli got me thinking. He responded with "I am still amazed when I see people calling themselves Senior Recruiters with 3-4 yrs exp."

I believe this is due to the fact that people drop out of the… Continue

Fordyce Forum Update - recent recruiting conference

I just got back from Las Vegas for the annual Fordyce confernce filled with big billers. This is not a general recruiting event instead it was a gathering of agency folks (no corporate recruiters to be found) and most those who have experience and generate a good amount of revenue.

I was there to present a workshop on Sales Skills for Recruiters. I was fortunate enough to be able to site in on a few other presentations that I want to share here...…

You Get What You Deserve ...

Well, you know what they say, you get what you deserve.

Getting Cross with Cross-Over Careerists

When the economy tanks in one sector, the advice you hear from ABC, CNN, Employment Blogs, HR professionals, and even your second-cousin is that you need to target sectors that are growing. That sounds like really smart advice, but like most mainstream pithy wisdom it has it's flaws doesn't it? And I feel like it is our job as talent identification professionals to knock some sense into the growing ranks of "cross-over applicants".

Only Applicants with Experience Need… Continue

Small Business Hiring Gains Fire Power

We are witnessing the end of an era. Since the end of the World War 2, large companies have controlled the ebb and flow of the US economy: from the reign of the Detroit automakers to the rise of west coast tech moguls like Microsoft and Google. Small businesses have been the tiny vessels tossed in the wake of gargantuan tankers, forcing their products on consumers through sheer bulk.

The tides are changing though- the failing American economy has exposed the incapability of big… Continue
